I've been busy trying to finish up my swaps and just when I'm getting mine off to the post office - my SSCS swap AND my dqs #5 arrived together. My big problem is the SSCS package - taunting me. I'm starting to see other people out there getting theirs and opening them. However, Chookyblue said do not open it before Christmas. But ... maybe it's something christmassy that I will want to enjoy throughout the season. This is going to be tough - I'm short on patience & overly curious. Maybe just a peek. Oops just emailed Chookyblue to let her know about getting the swap and she said DO NOT open it until Christmas - so I am going to have will power and wait! So if you are my partner - no worries.

On a less problematic note - I could open my dqs box and I was so thrilled. Megan over at www.willworkforfabric.typepad.com was my partner. I love what she made for me. She has done little hourglass blocks - that are so bright and pretty. Look at the quilting and I read on her blog that she did it from the back!!! She's quilted flowers on it! I've posted a picture of the back so you can see for yourself the exquisite flowers she's quilted. In addition she's made me a little bag and look at these pretty fat quarters - they are absolutely my favorite colors. Thank you so much Megan!!! Go look at Megan's blog - she has the most wonderful quilts and such beautiful applique and take a look at her patterns.

Lucky you! Your DQS from Megan is so pretty--love all of the cheerful colors! The bag she made for you is also great!
I have to admit that I am kind of curious about your other package too:) But I'll wait with you until Christmas...
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

What a beautiful colourful quilt!

ooo I would be like you too bursting at the seams. Have you got someone who could hide it for you and remember where it is at the right time? Hubby was good at hiding last year but not so good at the remembering. LOL

So pretty! I love the colors, and they really stand out against the white! I wouldn't be able to wait either if I were you - I would open it and not say anything! LOL!
